In America people from Karmøy had their own Immigrant Society ( «Karmøylaget») Which met at annual gatherings. We have photos from such occasions in Willmar, Minnesota and in Canton, South Dakota in 1913. The large one above is from a gathering of immigrant societies from all over Rogaland In Willmar in 1915.

Many of the Norwegian immigrants became farmers on the prairie. Pictures from Karmøy-settlers farms.
